State & Local Government

Technology priorities to assist today’s citizens

Governing bodies have been highly focused on implementing new solutions to help them better assist citizens, and nowhere is this more true than at the state and local levels. In addition, increasing data repositories and a need for updated data centers have government organizations seeking out advanced technologies to address their main pain points.

Information organization: Consolidating data centers

Rising levels of big data have affected institutions in nearly every sector, including state and local government. Recently, organizations across numerous states have been working to better organize and manage their data, ensuring that it provides the most value.

Data center consolidation is also part of these efforts, particularly as state and local government branches look to improve the use of their computing resources.

Increasing IT spending

With rising needs for data storage and management alongside virtualization and other consolidation strategies, government organizations have expanded their IT budgets to support these needs. In fact, recent studies show that IT spending has increased the most at the state level, and will continue on this track over the next few years.

State IT budgets grew 5 percent in 2015, and will increase at this level through 2019. In addition to data storage and virtualization strategies, this capital will also be put toward health care initiatives and support for higher education.
